The Warriors found no rival receiving the Pistons. The Californians marked distances from the beginning and in the second half they only had to play with their income to win 102-86.
It was a party, especially since Klay Thompson had the best game since his return to get 21 points in just 22 minutes. The escort was comfortable on the floor and the public vibrated with him. It remains to see him at full capacity, but performances like this invite us to be more than optimistic.
“I had a great time tonight, I wish I had made a couple more shots, but I had a great time, it was fun. I don’t care if I miss 100 shots in a row, I’m never going to stop shooting. I love it and I work too hard not to,” he says.
Returning to the game, in which Stephen Curry added 18 points and Andrew Wiggins another 19, it was completely broken at the beginning of the third quarter, when Steve Kerr’s boys came to win by up to 34 points… The forward highlighted the ability of his classmates from backcourt to take flight in the matches. “It happens suddenly. They heat up fast. When they do, it’s almost impossible to stop them,” he says of the Splash Brothers.
Kuminga, ownership seized
Jonathan Kumings started in the absence of Draymond Green (he will still be out for two weeks) and he did not disappoint. The rookie signed a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds, also scoring two of his four triple attempts. At 19 years and 104 days, he becomes the second youngest player to record a double-double with the franchise after Andris Biedrins, who did so at 18 years and 352 days on March 20, 2005, data fromElias Sports Bureau. Steve Kerr said at a press conference that he would continue to be in the starting five for the next few games.
The Pistons, far from giving war
Detroit had improved somewhat in recent weeks, but it didn’t show at Chase Center last night. Isaiah Stewart achieved a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds, numbers that Hamidou Diallo practically replicated with 16 points and 13 rebounds.Rodney McGruder, meanwhile, had 19 points off the bench. None of that served to reach the end of the match with options to fight for victory.
